Ages & Prizes

Age divisions will be 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12. Teams with multiple children will be placed into the age division of the oldest child in their group. Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place for each age division and to the overall winner.


Each team will receive one free bucket and shovel, while supplies last. The free buckets and shovels are sponsored by Stork & Bear Company.
